Schramm Park State Recreation Area is a unique geologic and botanical area with a spectacular view of the Platte River Valley. The nature trail winds through rugged and hilly woodlands and is a mix of crush-limestone, dirt and scenic suspension bridges. Each loop will alternate the direction of travel offering a “dizzy” and unique spirit of camaraderie.
Run, walk or crawl at your own pace. Stop, take a break, heck, take a nap. It’s up to you. You have 3, 6 or 12 hours to go as far as you can. Easy!
